What was the year and model of the Giant?
Used it as it appears here at Challenge Penticton Full distance tri and rode into 5th overall on the bike.
It's not the most expensive or latest technology, but it can get the job done!
Also tied for first at the local time trials lately the week before ( never thought that would happen ) less the aero bento and the aero bottle, just had a standard bottle in there.
Used a piece of pvc, electrical tape and 2 zip-ties for the computer mount which tucks neatle in behind the bottle, which fills the gap between my arms nicely.
Got the bike used 5 years ago ( no wheelset ) got the wheelset used this year, and built the disc cover myself.
I still have room to improve on the engine, it will be interesting what I can do next season!
Guy used it in 2009 and 2010, but moved bike shops, so I bought it at the end of the 2010 season for $750 with no wheelset, absolute steal imo.
It was my first bike too as an adult, and LOVED it. Not sure I will ever get rid of it now.
-Yes, I know it is in the small ring.
-No, I am not really that fast. I got it last year in December (14) at a price I couldn't refuse. I do miss my specialized transition, but this thing is pretty amazing.
HOLY GAP BATMAN! That Torhans needs to be moved closer otherwise it's slowing you down. May want to move to a horizontal BTA option if you're serious about aerodynamic savings.
"Train so you have no regrets @ the finish line"
Exactly that, the small frame (mine is a medium) has 25mm shorter head tube and with an ongoing back issue, I feared it would be a little too much for me.
The saddle height is lower than 'suggested' on my fit by about 10mm, but I am more comfortable, and more powerful (by feel and no loss of power via PM) in that position.
I have to admit, it does look a little off in that picture, but it sure feels comfortable!
On the internet, you can be anything you want. It is a pity so many people choose to be stupid.
